To in put will be witnessed in now Sontz Wales another history making i vent in connection with the Rebaza tinn of in top. The vim Man. Wealth. As Federal prime. Minister or. Barton in addressing the electors in the constituency of meal land which he Hopes to woo successfully will proclaim the Pioneer policy of the first ministry of the Commonwealth and Citrin Sivelly at least pfc speech will be the most important political utter Ance Ever Beard in Australia. He will directly and indirectly speak to a Tench larger audience than any other states Ian under the Southern Cross has yet been privileged to address for a Inay indicate possibilities of momentous consequence to the people of Australia and in some de Gree to their Brethren throughout the British Empire. Or. Barton is indeed honoured far beyond most men in being Tae principal figure on rach an occasion and every True federalist will Hope that be May in Tefr Ullest sense Avail himself of his unique and magnificent Opportunity. Beyond this nothing of a critical kind either per Sonal or otherwise can fairly be said in anticipation of his speech. Let him have his say and then be judged. If his ministry Are ? to act consistently with their previous proceeding and professions the prime m mister must on the one great tame before the coun try commit them to a policy of Protection. If they wish to represent popular feeling throughout Australia they will advocate the system of wider Liberty represented by the nearest practicable sep Roach to Rree Trade but such to Stacy on their part is presumably inconceivable. They should however do one thing or the other be either hot or cold and not lukewarm. The people will not tolerate Laodicean diplomacy it. The ministers of the Commonwealth. If. Then on the fiscal question or. Bar ton s remarks should be characterized by incertitude if he should indulge in generalities designed to Lead free traders to regard him As a Revenue Tariff advocate and protectionists to consider him to be their Champion True federalists and True patriots All will be compel god to. Oppose his government mistakes have been already made concerning the personnel of the ministry the whole Community of the Commonwealth will protest against a radically false beginning relative. To their policy ?. Another thing or. Barton ought to leave undone. He should not try to confuse Public thought regarding the real essentials to be submitted for the consideration of the Federal Parlia ment. Before Bis Elevation to the a remier he talked vaguely and in somewhat affrighted tones of the need of safeguarding the Constitution against some mysterious atack which sonic mythical somebody or. Other seemed to be determined to make upon it. Or. Barton is usually levelheaded and be must have laughed in Bis sleeve while indulging in this transparent piece of theatricality. Surely the actual appearance of an indication of an assault upon the principles of the Commonwealth act should be a sufficient signal to the defenders to begin to perform their special duty in its interest when bogies Are conjured up commonsense Folk want to know Why and in this Case the reason is not difficult to discover. Or. Barton s attitude reminds one of punch s Story of the two Little Sisters who slept together in a Little bed. One of them dreamt or imagined that she heard the scratching of a Little mouse and in alarm he roused her sister with the cry Maesie for your life there mouse in the room according to All Avail Able evidence or. Barton s constitutional peril is As unsubstantial As the phantom mouse and the people should not be induced to look out for it so eagerly As to forget to keep a keenly watchful Eye upon the fiscal Issue. For similar reasons they ought not to allow any commingling of state affairs and the business of the Federal govern nent in their relations with poetical con Towersy there two things Are quite Ais act Ana must of treated Accra Longly. The state franchise for. In stance Bas nothing to do Irith the Suff rage for the Commonweal ii and any Federal candidate who May endeavour to mend them together must be viewed with suspicious caution As a Man who wishes to avoid straight out discussion of burning questions which vitally concern the people in then capacity As citizens of United Australia. By All Means in fairness to All parties let toe electors clearly understand the issues which arc to be settled by their votes. In every Case grave deliberation should precede the initial use by the people of their Federal franchise. If the privilege of the voters is great their duty is correspondingly serious. Between their two capacities of Federal elector and state elector Are Nenny possibilities of complications which May involve costly mistakes. One oblige. Ton of South australians is to main Tain toe Commonwealth Bat another is to preserve the integrity of to fair own state. Australians As a whole will co operate in doing the former Bat tic latter is the concern of South austra lians alone. At first and or some time they will be almost wanted in Thelt efforts in Wise judicious Ness to Render unto the Commonwealth the things that Are the commonwealths Anil unto the state the service which it rightly claims. No Man can fairly be derided As a Little australian be cause of Bis insistence that the federa Tion shall not encroach upon the state. Tennyson says that the desc cosm Opo Lite is he who loves Bis native country Best and the remark Bas a powerful application to australian conditions in the separate states in connection Widi the inauguration of federation this special and distinctive to ii of of the states As states causes one to doubt whether a mistake Bas not been made in styling the members of the Commonwealth Cabinet. Ministers of state for this that and the other thing. Ministers of the common wealth would be less ii key to Lead to conf unto at a distance from austra Lia. This however is Only a Small matter. The great Deolde Ratnam is that a definite dividing line should be drawn in the Federal elections Between matters which affect Australia As a whole and those having Parr Icolar relevancy to South Australia is a. Unit of the federation. Let us first ele h the Commonwealth parliament Aad then give undivided attention to the solution of the Many serious and difficult problems which our Entrance into the Commonwealth has necessarily brought into prominence. Why not a University com Mercial examination boy wanted for office is a style of advertisement Jilch will always bring b. Crowd of Youthful aspirants. But the exact kind of boy who is wanted is ome Ames a very difficult individual to discover among the lot the species of by who can be trusted to take a note reds Ely and carry a message correctly who can write a letter according � simple instructions in Correct spell no and. Grammar and who possesses mob the aptitude and the training necessary to fit him Tor learning to insist in keeping a set of books tills pc of youth is certainly not by any scans so abundant in nature As what he naturalist would Call the common a Garden boy. It is a very strange act that Ontl quite recent years com Ceccial men have As a Rule taken no items whatever to secure the continue Ince of a Supply of lads who might be trusted to take their places among office workers and other traders. Any isolated instance in which concerted Actton is adopted with this object is rare to attract a Good Deal of notice Wing to its very rarity. At Bradford in England last year a new school of Commerce was established by arrangement Between the authorities of the Bradford grammar school and the local chamber of Commerce. The course which is intended for boys from fourteen to seventeen years of Ige extends Over three years and in dudes besides English German and French together with mathematics such subjects As business methods bookkeeping economics and Geo Graphy. In Sydney some of tic Lead ing commercial men Nave recently been endeavouring to Foster the study of subjects cognate to office work by establishing a series of examinations in them. The certificates awarded to successful candidates Are highly prize and a youth possessing one of them jul usually have a much better Chance of securing a desirable position in a commercial Bouse than one woo Bas not a similar recommendation. In Flie higher branches of commercial and financial work the value of a certificate issued by a competent body is runs rated by the Success of the Diplo Mas granted by the australian institutes of accountants. The recognition ii of accountancy As a profession which requires from the hew at least the Protection of Legal definition was urged by or. G. T. Lane of Adelaide in a paper Winch was read before the recent conference of accountants in Sydney. The cogency of or. Lane s reasoning is when the legislature in such measures As the companies acts expressly provides that certain duties shall be. Performed by auditors. It should also indicate some Means by which shareholders and others May ascertain whether candidates for the positions Are qualified. It Bas sometimes happened that Audi tors have been elected who could not sign their names and Many of base who were responsible for entrusting them with the duty of checking important accounts bad no knowledge of the fact. Surely such a state of affairs demands a remedy such As legislative recognition of the profession Otas Cou Tancy could Supply. The form which that recognition should take is matter for further and careful consideration. The whole subject of practical Edu cation in its bearings not Only upon manufacture but also upon Commerce Bas been opened up in England through ? the widespread interest aroused by the speeches of lord Rose Bery and or. Asquith. Parents and employees alike feel that when school fees Are paid they have a right to de Mand that the education imparted shall be of a character to and out lads who Are mentally Alert and not Mere so Heady dreamers. The course pre scribed for a Bey who is intended to enter a commercial Bouse should be in some respects quite different from that which must necessarily be followed by those who intend to enter the Learned professions and moreover it is eminently desirable that the highest educational authorities whose duty it is to direct aright the lines upon which the secondary schools shall proceed should take this matter up. Tic University Wurn conducts Tam in a Rig Ami Grants certificates in so Many subjects ought to prescribe Home kind of useful Ion Rae in commercial studies also., Here is no doubt whatever that if an j Era Montho were instituted of about Squal Grade with the senior pubic at fre University of Adelaide Bat direct id to the testing of proficiency in com. Medal subjects As also English modern languages and arithmetic the certificates granted to those who pass j id. Would be eagerly sought after. Such a department of educational work would toe at least As distinctly within the province of the University As the teaching of music and the conducting of play ing. A rim universities have travelled further. And award degrees to Commerce corresponding to those in science arts and Uva. In every Branch of Trade and Industry As Well As in Commerce one great need of the ago is method and it is not without reason that one of the subjects taught at Rose worthy agricultural col lege is Bow to keep a set of farm books. A very Large number of lads besides those who Are actually going into offices would receive the greatest Benefit from a course directed towards the passing of a commercial Examina Tion at the University. News of the Day. 3fficers Olf the next contingent. In executive Council on wednesday morning his excellency the governor made the.
